Results for France's established conservative and center-left parties in the presidential election are extremely grim. Pecresse is projected for just around *5%* of the vote, Hidalgo at 2%. Together they don't even amount to double digits— Populism Updates (@PopulismUpdates) April 10, 2022
“The results cement the idea that France has moved beyond the traditional left-right divide that has dominated post-war politics, and towards a battle pitching anti-immigration nationalists, represented by Le Pen, against pro-European progressives who are open to globalization.”— Paul Demko (@pauldemko) April 11, 2022
Yeah, it doesn’t look that way to me.
